House Talk: Stanton House Museum, Clinton
The Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation, in association with the Clinton Historical Society, will present House Talk: Stanton House Museum, Clinton on Saturday, June 23, 2012 (9:00 am - 12:00 pm) The program will feature a talk, tour and workshop with historian Bill Hosley.
Talk: “Housing Our History: A Search for Place, Past & Community” Drawn from an investigation of hundreds of mostly small local and regional museums, this program examines the role of historic houses, community collections and historical societies in fostering a sense of place and civic attachment. The best offer inspirational experiences, are evocative teaching tools, epitomize historic preservation, and are a refuge for local knowledge like few things left in our culture.
Tour & Workshop: Spectacular time-capsules, the Stanton House Museum, pictured above, and the Elisha White House (“Old Brick”), below, will be the subject houses.
